Transmission Substation Worker
Electrical substations are the connection between parts of the distribution grid and transmission systems. These facilities use transformers to step down the voltage in the transmission lines to one that is suitable for the distribution grid and are equipped with circuit breakers to protect the distribution system. The Apprentice Substation Electrician is a training position to develop the knowledge and skills a Journeyman Electrician will need to maintain system substation facilities.
An understanding of both mechanical and electrical maintenance techniques is a plus. A two-year technical degree in Electronics, Electricity, Electronic Technology, Industrial Maintenance, Electrical Construction & Maintenance, Electrical/Mechanical highly desired.
